Miramax Home Entertainment is proud to present this amazing, three-disc collector's set that includes two versions of the original indie classic, a killer, brand-new, 90-minute documentary -- "Snowball Effect: The Story Of CLERKS," and more never-before-seen bonus material than you can shake a salsa shark at!
Aimed squarely at its most devoted fans, the 10th anniversary DVD of Clerks is jam-packed with entertaining retrospective features. Kevin Smith's $27,000 film turned into one of the great legends of independent filmmaking, so it's only fitting that "Snowball Effect: The Story of Clerks" should be almost as long as the film itself, chronicling the film's rags-to-riches history in inspirational and often hilarious detail, from ominous flooding in Smith's New Jersey hometown as filming was about to commence, to the film's dream-like discovery at the Sundance Film Festival in 1994. The "10th Anniversary Q&A" is almost as good, since it reunites the entire cast and primary crew for an amusing, heartfelt, and occasionally confrontational reunion, including an on-stage reconciliation between Smith and cast member Jeff ("Randal") Anderson, who had fought over Anderson's claim to a cut of Clerks profits. (Smith admits he was wrong.) While the 10th anniversary commentary (with Smith, producer Scott Mosier, and costars Brian O'Halloran, Anderson, and Jason Mewes) is mostly a rambling waste of time, the archival materials are extensive and fun, amounting to what is essentially a scrapbook (including Smith's personal journals) about one of the scrappiest success stories of the 1990s. The "first cut" is appropriately rough (it was mastered from a VHS tape), but it gives Smith's loyal followers a chance to see the original, slightly longer version of Clerks that attracted so much enthusiastic attention among influential indie-film promoters in late 1993. Overall, this three-disc set is a valentine to do-it-yourself filmmakers everywhere, offering that crucial glimmer of hope that Smith's good fortune could happen again, to anyone with a camera and a dream. --Jeff Shannon

If you're not easily offended by four letter words, innuendo or blatant sexuality, this will make you smirk.
To me, some of the greatest things in the movie are the little errors were people might trip on a word for a second. That's so real, that it give the movie a sense of reality that is missing in so many other movies. People have complained that Randall sounds like he's reading from cue cards. So what! Haven't you ever met anyone like that? I have.
Jay and Silent Bob are the kings of loitering. What class they possess. Dante and Randall are a shining example of what can happen to you after working too long in a convience and rental store, respectively.
There is nothing far fetched about the story of a guy having a bad day at work. I had many days almost that bad when I did retail. The dialogue is brilliant. Nice little insights about life and your place in it.
After hearing a little of the story you forget that the movie is in black and white, and you don't care because it's so good. If you are a Kevin Smith/Silent Bob fan and have not seen Clerks yet... Get it! If you've watched Mallrats or Dogma without seeing this you're missing out.
Great soundtrack, very cool Soul Asylum video, neat extras. This is one of the best comedy movies out there.
